Kangana Ranaut: I feel feminism is a sorry state to be in for any society

When asked that a lot of people saw her as a man-hater, the actor said that was not the case as she had “friends and most of them are men”.

Kangana Ranaut recently spoke about the spats with the male colleagues in the film industry recently on Aap Ki Adaalat. Kangana was asked that most of the people saw her as a man-hater. She claims that it is not the case and also she had most of her friends as males.

She said, “I am not a man-hater. I am not sure when I became a feminist. The whole perception of inequality and one of being inferior to the other is so bizarre for me to come to terms with that I can’t understand it.”

She added, “The law of universal equality makes me look like a feminist but I feel feminism is a sorry state to be in for any society. Because you are lacking something and feminism is acting like a medicine to that illness or disease.”

“We should be a healthy society and bring equality. It is bizarre that people believe one section is less than the other. We should not have it (feminism) at all,” she said.

Kangana was asked about the film industry being male-dominated.
She said, “It’s something very hurtful if I say in an upfront way it’ll make big headlines.”

On her views about people’s perception regarding sex, Kangana said, “The way one treats and sees a woman reflects on his relationship with his daughter or wife. The world of glamour is almost like a fantasy land. It’s full of magic and opportunities.

“It’s always assumed that sex for women is a bad thing. I know a lot of people who have been very protective of their women, it’s all about keeping them away from men, opportunities, glamour as they think women might get swayed and have affairs.”

She added, “When it’s the affair of their son, you’ll hear so many men openly brag about it. ‘My son is a Casanova, what will he do if not have multiple affairs’. But when it comes to their girls, they are like ‘how dare my girl is going to date anyone, how dare she is thinking of joining films and people will watch her in mini skirts.”

“My girl won’t wear a bikini but I don’t mind bikini clad women around me or my son.’ It’s as petty as that. They feel it’s very manly to have such feudal ideologies and flaunt it like that,” she said.
